Galgorm’s Shane Murray continued his recent rich vein of form in the National Hot Rods with a polished hat-trick of wins at Aghadowey Oval on Friday evening. Murray steered his Ginetta to victory in both heats and the final of World Series NI Round 13, taking a major step towards the Northern Ireland Championship title.
A big field of Stock Rods for the King of Aghadowey saw Glenavy’s Jonny Cardwell victorious, whilst young Larne driver Charlie Johnston took a heat and final double in the Junior Productions. The other feature race win fell to Strabane’s Adam McKinney in the Thunder Rods.

Kenny McCann set the pace in the opening National Hot Rods heat, but all eyes were on the rapid Shane Murray who charged through to win over McCann and Davy McKay. Murray again scythed through from the rear of the field in heat two, this time heading Scotland’s James Mooney over the line.
The final saw the pristine Lotus of Ballymena’s Davy McKay set the pace, but he had no answer for the pace of Murray, as he powered his Ginetta to the front at half distance and pulled clear. Mooney again came through for an impressive second spot ahead of Antrim’s Dean McCrory.

The Stock Rods King of Aghadowey event saw welcome visitors from both England and the Republic of Ireland in action, with Randalstown’s Sam McNeice taking the opening heat after a huge battle with England’s Dan Rea. World Champ Dan Shannon came through for second ahead of Mark Foster, whilst there was an unfortunate rollover for Rab Preston.
Heat two saw the grid reversed and that saw Darragh O’Shea drive a storming race to take the win over European Champion Joe Largey and Stevie McNiece.The final saw Sam McNeice on pole, and he collected a warning from the Stewards early on for taking off much too early on the rolling start. He went ahead and led all the way, with Jonny Cardwell keeping him honest right to the flag. In the final analysis McNeice was docked two places for his jump start, handing victory to Cardwell over Shannon.

Another healthy entry of Thunder Rods saw Daniel Rodgers survive a Stewards Enquiry to take the win in the opening heat over Adam McKinney and James Goldie. Rodgers then made no mistake in heat two, coming home well clear of Tom Archibald and Josh Goligher to earn his second win of the night and a return to the star grade for the final.
The final saw McKinney hit the front early on, and he made good his escape to take a fine and deserved win over Jason Darragh and David Reynolds.

Young Harry Minish drove superb race to win the opening Junior Productions heat, powering past Ryan Abernethy on the outside to take the flag ahead of Leyton Hughes and Casey Cherry. The second heat was all about Larne newcomer Charlie Johnston, as he raced well clear of the rest to win by a distance over Andrew Russell and Lacey Bevan.
Johnston again controlled the final with ease, leaving his more experienced counterparts trailing in his wake to complete a double for the evening in emphatic style. Minish and Bevan rounded out the top three after another superb evening’s racing from the 10-16 year olds.

Former World Champion Andy Best from Gilford raced to a heat and final double in the 2.0 Hot Rods at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening (May 4th), during another excellent meeting from all five formulas on show. The King of Krash title for the Unlimted National Bangers fell to Donemana’s Leonard Dunn, whilst there were Tullyroan Challenge Cup successes for three drivers – Bangor’s Craig McConnell (Superstox), Banbridge star Gareth Halliday (1300 Stock Cars) and Ballymena’s James Goldie (Thunder Rods).

There were over 20 cars on the grid for the opening 2.0 Hot Rods heat, with Andy Best powering through the busy field to take the win after both Chris McCloy and Robbie Barnett had enjoyed spells out front. Heat two saw McCloy again the early pacesetter before Allen Cherry swooped around the outside to win in style from Ryan McCrory and Wayne Woolsey.
The final again saw McCloy out front early on once again, before he was caught by a whole bunch of challengers. With the track damp offline it made things very tricky, but Best managed to get underneath McCloy to hit the front. Despite late pressure from Woolsey and Adam Heatrick, Best held on to complete his brace of wins for the evening and claim an upgrade for the next meeting to the red grade.

A pleasing entry produced one of the better Unlimited National Banger meetings for some time, entertaining the fans all evening with some great racing and some big hits! The main event was the King of Krash, which fell to Leonard Dunn after a fine drive ahead of Stevo McGrath and Dave Haugh.
Deano McGrath held the lead in the first Allcomers race before he was spun out of contention, handing Dunn the lead and another win over the recovered Deano McGrath and David Gurney. The second Allcomers event went the way of Matthew Nicholl, who had somehow managed to repair his car after a huge crash earlier in the evening. Deano McGrath and Darryl Gilshennan chased him home before an outstanding Destruction Derby ended in superb fashion as Stevo and Deano McGrath tied for the win after a huge head-on killed both their cars.

Brian Lammey led the opening Superstox heat for much of the distance before Jamie MCcann stole through for a late win over World champion Craig McConnell. The second heat saw Dean Catherwood relegate Gerard Hartley to take the victory.
The Tullyroan Challenge Cup final was lined up in points order, with a huge scrap over the opening bends at the head of the field. McConnell made good his escape early on to take the victory in some style, ahead of Steven Haugh and Lee Davison.

The big steel bumpers were put to good use all evening in the all-action 1300 Stock Cars, with Robbie Wright nicking the opening heat win from Ty Richardson after a tremendous finish. Richardson was first over the line in heat two but lost out to a penalty for a jump start, handing the win to Bobbie Johnston ahead of Wright.
Wright had pole for the Tullyroan Challenge Cup final, but he was rattled hard around the wall on the opening lap. Through the carnage and chaos came Gareth Halliday to win from Matthew Milliken and Johnston.

Completing the programme were the Thunder Rods, also competing for the Tullyroan Challenge Cup. Andrew McLean took the opening heat ahead of Samuel Murphy and James Goldie, before Daniel Rodgers scooped heat two ahead of Neil Capper and Goldie.
The Challenge Cup final was dominated by Goldie, who stretched clear to take the win ahead of Capper and Joshua McMullan.

Fantastic racing was the order of the evening at Tullyroan Oval last Saturday, with thrilling action throughout the meeting. Loughgall’s Jordan McCann bounced back from a huge crash just three weeks ago to land the National Hot Rods final, whilst young Antrim racer Leyton Hughes took the honours in the Moffett Shield for Junior Productions.
Donemana’s Gavin Gamble won the Rookie Bangers Spring Classic, whilst the other two feature races fell to drivers from the Ballymena area, Ahoghill’s Reuben Kernohan in the Stock Rods and Conor Doherty from Cargan in the Lightning Rods.

Round 12 of World Series NI saw a pleasing entry of cars, with Shane Murray getting out of the blocks fast to win the opening heat superbly ahead of Jordan McCann and World Champion Derek Martin. Heat two saw a dramatic finish, as the field had just a one lap shoot out to the chequered flag after a late race caution. Simon Kennedy held on for the win despite huge pressure from Drew McKeown and Glenn Bell behind.
The final saw Jordan McCann quickly work his way to the head of the field, as a huge pack of star drivers hounded him down. As they entered the final laps they were all together, with McKeown and Murray looking for the chance to pounce. McKeown had a serious effort on the last lap thwarted, as McCann held on for a very welcome win after an excellent drive. McKeown, Murray and Bell rounded out the top four.

The Junior Productions were racing for the annual Moffett Shield, with some great prizes on offer presented by the Moffett Family. A number of restarts were required in heat one with Irish Champion Matthew Weir taking the win after first across the line Leyton Hughes was demoted for a restart infringement during the latter stages. Heat two a great win for debutant Owen O’Brien, who held the field off to take the flag ahead of Ryan Abernethy and Tom Hewitt.
O’Brien again led the Moffett Shield final impressively until past the half way mark, but he just couldn’t stave off a superb charge from the flying Hughes. There was just no stopping Leyton, and he powered home to win the superb shield ahead of Callum Doak, who has surged through to second, and Andrew Russell.

There was close, competitive action from the Stock Rods all day long, with the opening heat falling to impressive recent newcomer Darragh O’Shea. There was a great scrap for the places which was led home by Sam Wilson ahead of Reuben Kernohan. Heat two saw O’Shea again victorious, with Wilson once again in second despite heavy pressure from Sam McNeice and Kernohan late on.
With O’Shea upgraded to further back the grid for the final, it was Aaron Dilly who set the pace before O’Shea did manage to work his way to the front but with the pack on his tail this time. Kernohan was able to grab the lead, and he held on all the way home for a fine win ahead of World Champion Dan Shannon and Wilson.

There was a very tight finish to the opening Lightning Rods heat, with Conor Doherty just getting the nod over Gerry Rogers and Ian Hobson. Star man James McKinney then came through to win the second heat, as he slipped under Doherty late on to take the chequers ahead of Mary Corry.
The final was all about Doherty, as he put plenty of daylight between him and his challengers early on. As he took an impressive win to earn an upgrade for the next meeting, McKinney and Corry completed the top three.

The Rookies Banger entertained always with plenty of on track frolics, with Lucas Goligher claiming the opener ahead of Phillip Farrell. Goligher again took the second heat, this time ahead of his brother Josh and Stephen Boyd, the latter two having had a great battle for second.
Farrell led the opening laps of the Spring Classic final, with Gavin Gamble coming through to the front at mid-distance. Despite Irish Champion Boyd putting on the pressure, Gamble held on for the win ahead of Boyd and Lucas Goligher.

Drew McKeown from County Armagh claimed the 2.0 Hot Rods King of Aghadowey title as the drivers and fans enjoyed a sunny spring evening at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday night.
There was action aplenty amongst all five formulas on show, with Portadown duo Steven Haugh and Ollie Williamson taking heat and final doubles in the Superstox and Ninja Karts respectively, whilst there was also a double for Magherafelt newcomer Philip Porter in the Thunder Rods. The stars of the evening were arguably the 1300 Stock Cars, where Lisburn’s Craig Bodenham secured the feature race victory.

The opening 2.0 Hot Rods heat saw a fantastic finish as Scott Cochrane just held off Wayne Woolsey by millimetres on the line after a fantastic battle, before heat two went to Ryan McCrory ahead of Drew McKeown.
Cochrane had pole spot for the King of Aghadowey final and went ahead, before a superb opportunistic move by McKeown saw him find a gap into the Brown Trout Bend.

The all-action 1300 Stock Cars entertained all evening with the bumpers going in hard.

The final just couldn’t live up to the high standards set before, with Bodenham racing clear to record a well deserved victory over David Wilson and Jonathan Brown.

Jonathan Crawford and Lammey disputed the early lead in the final before Paddy Murphy took over. He had no answer to Haugh’s pace, the Birches man steaming through to record his second win of the night ahead of Catherwood and Murphy.

A pleasing entry of 20 Ninja Karts took the green flag in their opening heat. With Ollie Williamson leading until a late caution period. Star man Jake Barnett pounced to hit the front on the restart and win from Ollie and Keegan Turtle.
Williamson then starred throughout the remainder of the meeting, taking heat two from Barnett and then driving a superb final to take the silverware in style.

Ollie also received the Best White Grade award from sponsors LJN Motorsport, with Rowdy Grattan taking the Best Yellow Grade trophy.
